These thermoform tiles are made from UV Stabilized .030" thick vinyl plastic. They are designed to glue-up to ceilings and even walls! With its overlapping edge design, the results appear seamless. This is ideal for direct mount installation projects.

The durable PVC material is easy to clean, stain resistant, water resistant, dust free, and eco friendly! With a Class A fire rating, the Manchester Ceiling Tile is a great addition to home and businesses. Their lightweight feature creates an easier installation process with minimal strain and stress. Also, they are 100% recyclable and made in the USA!

Highlights:
The stylish design and overlapping feature makes the Manchester a fantastic choice for glue-up aka direct mount applications. You will love the benefits of this overlap tile, which creates a consistent, seamless look.

Things to Consider:
Because this tile is designed to overlap the edges, a 2x2 tile does not cover a full 3.96 square feet, but rather 3.47 square feet when properly installed. Accessory products such as grid strips are not needed for overlapping these glue-up tiles.

Save a trip to the store by purchasing our Red Devil brand Direct Mount Adhesive. If you would prefer to pick up something locally, find a standard Construction Adhesive such as Loctite Power Grab. When using adhesive, be sure to test it out before committing to the entire project.

Greenguard
Greenguard Gold Certification offers strict certification criteria that considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly), and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System. Click here for more information.

UL Listing/Certification
Certain ProLite ceiling tiles are approved drop-out ceiling panels that can be installed beneath fire sprinklers. When exposed to heat from a developing fire, drop-out ceiling panels soften, distort, and fall from the ceiling grid. Heat from the growing fire activates the sprinkler which, unimpeded by the panels, controls or extinguishes the fire. Click here for more information.

Waterproof
Materials used in the construction of the tile(s) are 100% waterproof.

Class A Fire Rated
Tiles have been tested in accordance with ASTM 84e and scored a Class A rating for flame spread and smoke generation.

How to Install Manchester Ceiling Tiles

Adhesives -vs- Staples
Adhesive is recommended when installing our vinyl tiles, because the tiles can crack when using staples. We recommend Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive.

Tools Needed

  • Tape measure
  • Pencil
  • Chalk line (recommended)
  • Straight edge
  • Scissors or Aviation (Tin) Snips
  • Adhesive (about 1 tube for every 8 tiles)
  • Paper towels and water for clean-up
  • Eye protection

Surface Types and Methods of Installation

  • Sheetrock, Drywall, Plaster, Cement, Wood Paneling, Plywood
    Install the tiles directly to the ceiling using an adhesive that is compatible with both the ceiling and the ceiling tile.
  • Wood Furring Strips
    Furring strips are a great solution for rough ceilings that would require a lot of work to fix. Level with shims as you install them to give a flat mounting surface. Space out the furring strips according to your tile spacing determined below.
  • Popcorn / Stucco / Cottage Cheese Ceilings
    Ceiling tiles should never be applied directly to popcorn ceilings. Either remove the ceiling texture, add a new layer of drywall or 1/4" hardiebacker over the surface, or install furring strips. NOTE: If removing texture installed before the mid-1980's, test beforehand for asbestos, which may require removal by a licensed contractor.

Determine Tile Spacing
Place a few tiles on the floor and determine your preferred overlap. Measure the tile spacing in this position. The grid you draw will be smaller than your tile due to the overlap (e.g. if your tile is 23 7/8" and you have a 1/2" overlap, you will draw your grid at 23 3/8").

Note: Everywhere 4 adjacent tiles overlap, the tile thickness compounds. Often, the ceiling height makes this unnoticeable. However, if desired, you can trim 2 or 3 tiles to minimize the thickness.

Planning Your Layout
Use grid paper and map out your ceiling. Indicate the position of lights, vents, and any other fixtures or obstructions to help determine your layout.

Consider the main, most visible area of your space as well as the longest runs of tiles. These are usually the lines you want square to your starting wall (used as the base for your lines). Most rooms are not square and many times tile layout is a compromise of room shape and border tile size needs.

Using the tile spacing you determined above, draw the tile grid in your layout. Many people prefer equal width border tiles on opposing walls, and a larger border is often preferred over a small one.

Mark Grid On Ceiling
Use a chalk line (or pencil) to put your layout onto the ceiling to keep everything straight. Be precise; if you are off by only 1/8" on each tile, after 8 tiles you will be off a whole inch! Space your chalk lines according to your determined spacing.

Before You Begin
Your surface needs to be smooth, clean, and dry. Test your adhesive and tile combination in a small area before committing to doing the whole ceiling.

Installing the First Tile
Make sure all surfaces are clean, as well as your hands. Any oils on the ceiling, tiles, or your hands can affect the adhesive performance. Latex gloves are a great option, keeping oils off the tiles and keeping your hands clean of adhesive.

It is easiest to align two edges of the tile to the drawn grid lines (e.g. the bottom and right edges if you are working from top to bottom and left to right) so that you don't cover any lines you'll need for a subsequent tile.

Apply a 1/8" to 3/16" bead of adhesive all the way around the perimeter of the backside of the tile as well as a 4" "X" to the center section. Keep a damp towel handy to clean up any adhesive that may seep out.

Gently place the tile close to its final location next to your chalk lines. Lightly press the tile to the ceiling as you slide it into position. This lets the adhesive spread out and smear a bit. Once you are satisfied that the tile is in place, firmly press it to the ceiling, rubbing out any bumps in the adhesive.

Second Tile
Use the same gluing technique as the first tile. Place the second tile next to your first one, aligning to the same edges of the grid lines (e.g. bottom and right) as your first tile. It should overlap the first tile by your predetermined amount. Continue to place full sized tiles, following your grid lines.

Border Tiles
Measure the open space from the installed tile to the wall, adding overlap distance. Make sure to take measurements at each end of the space, as the measurements are often different due to inconsistencies in construction. Make sure the tile is facing the correct direction. Transfer your measurements to your border tile and cut it.

Love this product

We removed all kitchen cabinets that were hanging from the ceiling and opened up the space in our kitchen in our mobile home. This left 2 exhaust holes, indents, scrapes and patched up job in the ceiling. I found and ordered the Manchester Ceiling Tiles and covered the ugly old ceiling. They are very easy to cut to size and install. It's like a whole new home. We are super pleased with the look. Highly recommend this product.

Looks amazing!

We purchased the Manchester glue-up tiles for our bathroom ceiling. Wow, what a difference, it looks amazing! My hubby said it was very easy to install and couldn't be happier with the results .

We love it

The Manchester tile was perfect for our direct mount application an required no decorative strips or tape. The low profile adhered to existing plaster ceiling and made it easy to add track light and ceiling fan. Customer Service was great and helped us select correct tile and answer installation questions. Ordering was easy and arrived on schedule. Very happy with ProCeiling Tiles and will use again and highly recommend to friends.
